VE or VJ Day Street Party in Abbey Road 1945

VE or VJ Day Street Party in Abbey Road 1945 /media/flashcomm?action=mediaview&context=normal&id=301
Description:

This party in Abbey Road, which was then only 10 years old and still a cul-de-sac, has already been included in the archive as a VJ Day Party (Victory over Japan on 15th August 1945) but this slightly different photograph of the same event has come to the archive as being a VE Day Party (Victory in Europe on 8th May 1945). Either way, it was very much a victory party.

Thanks for this photograph go to Steve Collins of Abbey Road, whose father Alan Collins was there - second from the right in the row of boys.
